Forum: texts Subject: Re: zipped jpg directory won't derive

Well, in working with several 30-day test objects I will tell you I did have one _jpg.zip file work, with just a few images. But no success subsequently (until today, with another test file).

Jeff responded to my other post and hence fixed the problem, with this comment - "the item has been fixed. The _images.zip needed to have Generic Raw Book Zip chosen as it's format in the Edit item page in the Files and Formats section prior to running a derive." So now I know to look for that, too.

Thanks for your details on the process (did not stick with the error log long enough to pull apart all that was going on). I submitted this with the first 2 jpg files and it seems neither the post nor the files uploaded so I'm abandoning the attached files - as you say, I'll stick with *_images.zip for uploads. Presumably this will be fine if we switch back to uploading tiffs (had started with tiffs but had to tar it and then started with various problems, so wasn't sure if the tiffs or the tar file were problematic, so bumped down to jpgs).

Whew. It's great when it works, though! Many thanks!!
